Built at the live-modding of the DCMM at Dortmund on 2006-04-27
Needed time: ~5 hours
The CAT was built of some IKEA parts and some new parts from my stuff box.
In one side, I inserted a aluminium picture-frame. If the pictures would be removed, the frame can be used as a window. The suckhole got a red cold cathode light behind it.
The other side was not modified.
The bezel has two small fans as eyes, about that two handles as eyebrows, a illuminated plexiglas-globe as the “nose” and two “cat paws”.
Material and parts
Cheapo-Case (29,-€ with PSU 350 watts)
This small fans are from chipset coolers and were mounted reversed. Costs: 1,-€ each.
They are from IKEA for ~10,-€ each.
IKEA, 9,-€ (but they packed always two globes in one pack)
The cold cathode is from Conrad, Vienna. They were a special offer for 8,-€ (incl. inverter).
86,-€ (with PSU and w/o PC-hardware)
I changed the coating and made a felt surface on it. So, the CAT was a gift for my two little nieces...
...and it lived happily ever after.
